It did a fine job... that 3mp!
Bill Phillips: It still works.
A fine building Bill, not bad for 3MP
Bill Phillips: A Kodak compact with a x3 zoom. Still got it and it still works
Jolie couleur rosée.
Bill Phillips: It certainly is Martine

That gutteridge will need to carry a vast quantity of rainwater during heavy deluge.
Bill Phillips: As the expert on such matters I bow to your superior knowledge
2006 was when I first started on SC, Bill, and was using my Powershot S3 IS camera. Those were the days, my friend! Well done.
Bill Phillips: That had 6mp and a 12x zoom......heady stuff grin

Back to memory lane, Bill. Those were the days, don't you love it. The evolution we went through...
Bill Phillips: The novelty of digital. I still have the camera and it does still work

an impressive, solid building! I recall theat there is also a castle?
Bill Phillips: This is part of the castle. The only intact part

Is this part of the Castle, Bill. I seem to remember ruins?
Bill Phillips: This is the one part that isn't Lisl

This isn't half bad for 3mp!

Kenilworth Castle?
Bill Phillips: It is indeed said castle. The only intact bit as I recall

I see some windows are closed against peeking. That must be where they kept and created Frankenstein.
Bill Phillips: Can't just let any old riff raff have a peek

Its a fine looking place in this light. Any camera is better than no camera and its done a reasonable job.
Bill Phillips: I thought it was amazing at the time gringringrin
A fine looking building, we called in there once but it wasn't a very nice day so didn't stop. I wish I still had my first digital camera, it was in 2003 and was an Olympus compact with 4mp, sadly the display gave up and made it very difficult to use.
Bill Phillips: The Olympus was highly regarded. The second Kodak I had was a disaster. There first one packed up very rapidly and was replaced and the second one the screen broke when it fell off a Lowe shelf actually in a camera bag....that was when I went and bought my first DSLR

An interesting looking building. Wasn't 3mp so impressive in those days!
Bill Phillips: It was Anne. The best things about the little Kodak were that it was metal and the battery was a rechargeable lithium one
> A good memory to share.
Bill Phillips: I have been having a sort out!
It did the job, Bill - just shows that all those MP really aren't absolutely necessary, unless you want A1 size blow-ups!
Bill Phillips: No indeed although it only shot jpegs. No RAW to play around with

the patterns in the structure are perfectly imperfect
one of my first thoughts:

Why are those windows painted solid blocking views inside. Is this portion of the remaining castle still be lived in or used for some purpose?
Bill Phillips: The blocking of windows may have been a result of the window tax
noticed the comments about the type of camera or lens.

I bought my first digital camera in 2003


Looking back at my years of basic Kodak film cameras or 35 mm slide cameras compared to my 16 years of


the percentage of sharp images has become so high compared to when I counted the number of shots I could get from a single roll that were sharp.

All point and shoot with short periods of thinking about technical aspects of photography

Also seeing your castle or manor house shots clearly reminds me that I live in a young country.
Bill Phillips: I think I had mine in 2004. It was a Kodak.

Yes you do live in a young country and it is one that is still showing some growing pains
isn't UK after all its centuries as a country also experiencing many pains?
Bill Phillips: Ours are those more of old age and a failure to recognise that we are no longer a major world power
